You guys, my story has refused to stick to the script these beginning days of 2017. This is what the script looked like:

-Teach my kids intensely

-Publish three recipes(one a video recipe) in the first week

-Host a new year giveaway

-Prepare and enjoy all sorts of healthy meals

-Start Bible-in-one-year plan

But this is what has actually happened;

-An unprecedented trip to the hospital in an ambulance due to chronic neck pain – muscle spasm

-Being unable to do much apart from lying down, sitting, crying, wishing, praying, etc

I have been given various powerful pain killers but they work for a while then the pain returns. I have prayed and I have been prayed for. The pain is still there.

I have lightly massaged the area, applied heat and cold to it, applied peppermint oil, watched neck sprain videos on YouTube and practiced everything from acupuncture to neck exercises. What kind of pain is this?

As much as this frustrates me, I’m hanging in here and trusting God that this too shall pass. Please pray for me. If you have any ideas on how I could alleviate this pain, please kindly share.

I’ll be back full swing when this thorn in my flesh is over.

God bless you.

  2. Happy new year Precious!!!
    Wow…really sorry to hear this. Don’t worry you’ll be fine. Just try not to apply so much press to the area and relax though I know you might find it hard to. Just relax and take lots of rest and try and be positive. I remember when I had an accident and I felt helpless for weeks, but soon it was over and it feels like a memory. I took the chance to read books and relax in the house. Praying for you. You’ll be fine in Jesus name and return bouncing.
    Much love.xo!

    1. Amen! The pain is barely there now and the excruciating part totally feels like a memory. I can’t believe I couldn’t turn my head just some days ago. Thank you, dear.
